Liquid Marijuana

Liquid Marijuana

And, A $10 Burger

It’s a pretty decent one, too.

Liquid Marijuana makes 1

1/2 ounce rum (or spiced rum, if you like) 1/2 ounce Blue Curaçao 1/2 ounce Midori Melon […]

Nam Phuong — Mì Quảng

Mì Quảng

Topped with roasted chicken chunks, roasted peanuts, delicious and crispy shards of black sesame rice crackers…

Chả lụa (or giò lụa, or Vietnamese pork loaf slices), tender shrimp…

And, tucked under those peanuts […]

The Illinois

The Illinois Imperial India Pale Ale Goose Island Beer Co.

Good balance, full bodied, spicy, complex citrus-y bitter (in a very good way) edge

We both enjoyed every sip. And, we’d buy it again.

2014 favorite? It was definitely one of them.

Taqueria Los Hermanos

Quesadillas De Camerones Shrimp Quesadillas

This lunch dish was served with a spoonful of pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream and shredded lettuce on the side.

Liberté Yogurt

Liberté Yogurt Peach & Passion Fruit

Finally, truth in advertising….

We really love this yogurt. It might just be yogurt perfection. If not outright perfection, Liberté comes seriously close to it. The blend of peach and passion fruit balances the sweet with the tart. And, the […]

Crawfish Shack

Soft Shell Crab Po’boy

From the bread to the crispy crab to the nicely spiced drizzle of sauce on top, this was incredibly good. We’re already craving another one.

Fried Shrimp

Better on previous visits, but, these were […]

The Local 7

Pork “Wings” With Carolina Sauce & Onion Rings

The Onion Rings

Served piping hot and super crisp, we loved these. Golden brown, crispy flavorful batter on the outside with tender onion on the inside, these are everything you want an onion ring to […]

Tree Story Bakery & Cafe

Pumpkin Twist

Yeasty goodness swirled with pumpkin and plenty of spice, it’s a bit like a cinnamon bun with spiced pumpkin filling in for the cinnamon swirl. And, the toasted pumpkin seeds and almond slivers encrust every inch of the top of this tasty treat. […]

Dos Madres Cantina

Guacamole & Chips

Salsa, Too

Baja Pescado

Beer (Three Taverns Brewery, Prince of Pilsen Pilsner) battered fish, freshly creamed sweet corn with roasted poblano peppers and goat cheese, and a small mountain of jalapeño slaw […]

Pandan Cakes

Honestly, we weren’t expecting much. So, we were very happily surprised with these. They’re a bit like a Twinkie. But, these are so much better than a cloyingly sweet, greasy (paste-y) cream filled twinkie. They’re softer, fluffier, less greasy, and just all around tastier. We actually want to eat these. […]
